Lunch Hour Unleashed: Innovative Concepts for Lunchtime Socials
Lunchtime - for many, is seen as, ‘the hour you can sit at your desk and eat a sandwich in the middle of the day’. But we like to think of lunchtime as the opportunity to step away from the hustle and bustle of the working day and mingle with colleagues outside of the office environment.
This blog explores everything there is to know about lunchtime socials and why they are fast becoming a popular lunch-hour activity.
What is a Lunchtime Social?
A lunchtime social is an allocated period around lunchtime when employees can gather together in a shared space to take a break. Providing the opportunity to mingle and grab a bite to eat together allows employees to decompress from the stress of the day and catch up with each other on any personal gossip.
Lunchtime socials provide a well-needed break that employees can dedicate to themselves without having to rush their lunch to get more work done.
Why Should You Host a Lunchtime Social?
Lunchtime socials help to boost productivity in the office by providing a well-deserved split in the middle of the working day. Employees, given the opportunity to take some time to themselves, feel as though they are valued as an integral part of the business and won’t feel overworked.
Providing corporate catering during a lunchtime social gives employees the chance to choose a healthier option over that of their standard fast-food and non-nutritional choices.
Benefits of Professional Corporate Catering
So what are some of the benefits of providing corporate catering for your employees? Below are our top three reasons for doing so.
First of all, having a professional corporate caterer provide all of the essential services for your event takes the stress off of you, the employer, and gives you more time to mingle with your team, strengthening the bond between you both inside and outside the office.
Having corporate catering at your work event also means there is no requirement for you to purchase food and drink ahead of time, factoring in storage facilities like fridges and freezers, as well as fuel consumption and time wasted travelling to various shops.
